duran-duran-paper-gods-album-cover-636-6\

listened to about half on my way to work. quite bad imo but what do i know. lol at the first song being a kind of fight song against vanity/excess/stupidity and track two being a wailing diva and all about partying like there's no tomorrow. track three is a hilarious attempt at duran duranxtrap and it's surprising i made it past that track

 

continued listening but after that my brain shut off

So sad... Duran Duran were really good back in the 80's and 90's (culminating with the "Wedding Album"), but after that, they never struck gold again.

 

One good release of theirs is "Thank You" - it's Duran Duran doing covers of famous songs by other artists - I actually like their version of "Watching The Detectives" better than Elvis Costello's version, and "911 is a Joke" and "White Lines" are solid covers too.

most of the tracks are seriously inept attempts at top 40 dance anthems.

This track sounds lush to me (only one I've heard as well), though the trap sprinkler hi-hat is a bit lel. John Frusciante on guitar:

The album before this was great!

The Timbaland one before that was awful, and I pretty much only like their first two albums.

What's the deal with John Frusciante? I keep seeing his name dropped all over the place but the times I've made a conscious effort to listen to his stuff I'm seriously underwhelmed.
